Sciton CelluSmooth vs Cellfina: Which is best for Cellulite Reduction?

Bumpy, dimpled skin known as cellulite is often a source of frustration for many women, because diet and exercise has little effect on it. But there are now several new technologies such as CelluSmooth and Cellfina that can reduce it. If you’re trying to decide between CelluSmooth vs Cellfina,and you’re not sure which is best for cellulite reduction, the information below will help you.

What causes cellulite?
Cellulite is caused by tethering bands of fibrous tissue that pull down on the fat layer below the surface of the skin. The pressure causes pockets of fat to bulge between the tissues, giving the skin a dimpled appearance.

CelluSmooth
CelluSmooth is a minimally invasive laser system for treating cellulite on the thighs, buttocks, and almost any other area of the body. It is an in-office procedure that is done under local anesthesia. CelluSmooth utilizes advanced M3 technology, which delivers1319 nm laser wavelength in three distinct modes.There is minimal bruising and discomfort after the procedure.

Cellfina
Cellfina is also a minimally invasive procedure for cellulite. It is a one-time treatment that is performed using local anesthesia. Cellfina uses a small needle-sized device to break the fibrous bands.  Once they are released the skin starts to smooth out.

Which is best for Cellulite Reduction?
Both CelluSmooth and Cellfina attack the underlying cause of cellulite, but CelluSmooth goes further. The 3 different modes in which the wavelength is delivered performs distinctive operations. It severs the bands of fibrous tissue, melts some of the fat below the skin, and also stimulates collagen to create a tightening effect.

CelluSmooth is available in the San Francisco Bay area at the offices of Dr. Robert Aycock.

How long do Cellfina treatments last?

Cellfina

Dimples on the face can be cute, but the same can’t be said about cellulite dimples on the thighs and buttocks. But if cellulite is a problem for you, Cellfina can improve their appearance. But what does the procedure involve, and how long do Cellfina treatments last.

Cellfina
Cellfina is a minimally invasive treatment for the reduction of cellulite. Unlike other solutions that treat cellulite at a surface level, Cellfina treats the structural cause of cellulite, creating a long lasting solution.

How it works
Cellulite is caused by the fibrous bands that are intertwined through the fat that gathers in the thighs and buttocks. When the bands contract they pull down on the skin, and this causes the dimpling effect.

Cellfina treatment uses a small device about the size of a needle, to release the fibrous bands around the fat layer below the skin. The skin bounces back when the bands are released, and soon becomes smooth again.

The results of Cellfina can last for up to 2 years.

How long do Cellfina treatments last
Cellfina is an in-office treatment that only takes 45 minutes to complete, and most patients achieve the desired results after a single session.

What to expect
Patients can expect to experience some soreness and tenderness after treatment, but this is temporary. There may also be some minimal pain, but this generally resolves within a few weeks. Results can be seen about 3 days after treatment. Cellfina will make your skin smoother and dimple free.
